‘I’m A Believer’ – Guitar Solo by Dann Huff
Dann Huff is now a very successful music producer in Nashville, however prior to this part of his career, he was a first call session guitar player and also the singer/lead guitarist with the rock band Giant. The debut album by Giant (‘Last of the Runaways’) heavily featured Huff’s incendiary guitar playing and here’s his amazingly fluid solo on the track ‘I’m A Believer’.
As a quick note, I transcribed this solo back in the 1990’s and only recently rediscovered it in some old paper files. It was transcribed without modern transcription software, so you may disagree with some small sections of the transcription but I think it’s broadly accurate. As with any fast solo like this (especially one recorded with a very high gain sound) getting every detail 100% correct is quite a task, so I’d strongly recommend listening to the recording closely.

Now here’s the transcribed solo and further below you will also find a PDF file that you can print out to put on your music stand.
OK that’s it for this lesson…enjoy this amazing Dann Huff guitar solo…
